    Thanks Subratam,

    I already did what you advised en nothing shows up to be worried about.
    I deleted that CWS in PP, everything is working fine.

    Hi Gerard,

    What was the name of the file PP removed?
    Their site is very chaotic where it concerns CWS:

    Nice, you removed the cookie block for one of the CWS sites.

    [RANT]Why is it so hard to check the value of such a registry entry before flagging it as dangerous.[/RANT]

    OK I'm calm again. ;)

    gerard,

    Do you use a program to block cookies?

    Regards,

    Pieter

    Good morning Pieter,

    I am using Cookie Patrol. In IE I allow direct cookies and cookies per session, indirect cookies are blocked.
    In IE (Sites with limited acces) I have installed the list of IE-Spyad. (highest protection)
    In SSD I ad the hostlist for blocking URL 's.

    Have a nice day,

    Gerard

    Hi Gerard,

    Since I don't expect you to get in trouble until the next update for IE-Spyad, I'll leave it up to you to wait for that one or re-apply the last one.

    Regards,

    Pieter
